This is just what the name implied--incredibly easy. Unlike many chocolate cake recipes that call for unsweetened chocolate and cake flour, this one uses common pantry items like cocoa and regular flour. I used a whole egg instead of just the yolk and sprayed the pan with nonstick spray instead of buttering and dusting it with cocoa. I frosted it the easy way too--with canned whipped chocolate frosting (Betty Crocker, iirc)--it turned out just as good as any chocolate bakery cake I've ever had and much better than boxed mixes.EASY DARK CHOCOLATE CAKE 1/2 cup cocoamilk (see note below)4 tablespoons Crisco or butter1 cup sugar1 egg yolk1 cup flour1/2 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon vanilla1 teaspoon baking sodaPreheat oven to 350°F.In a 1 cup measure, put cocoa powder; add a small amount of hot water and stir until cocoa dissolves.

Set aside.Beat shortening or butter and sugar, add egg yolk, beating for one minute. Stir in vanilla and remaining ingredients.Mix for one minute. Turn batter into a buttered brownie pan which has been lightly dusted with cocoa (shake out any excess cocoa).Bake for about 40 minutes or until cake tests done.http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,176,133188-251199,00.html
